How to Fix a Wobbly or Uneven Coin Ring with a Repair Die

If you’ve made any of a number of coin rings, you know that at times, your coin can become uneven, or “wobbly” looking; (commonly found on thinner, smaller coins that have high reliefs, such as the Washington Quarter or the Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar). This can also happen if you fold your coin too quickly into your reduction die if it’s not level to begin with while you’re folding it down.

If that happens, you can use a new tool called a “Coin Ring Repair Die” along with a piece of high-impact and cut-resistant Urethane Pad on any ring sizing machine, arbor press, or hydraulic press to help straighten the wobbly coin ring out.

The Coin Ring Repair Die (pictured above) is made out of a solid piece of Hardened Steel and can also be used as a sizing “Press Plate” when you’re using an arbor press or a hydraulic press to reduce your coin down to its’ final shape and size.

The piece of red impact-resistant urethane pad (which is formulated for cut-resistance and memory retention) acts as a “buffer” between the ram head of either your ring sizing machine, arbor press or hydraulic press and the coin to help protect the delicate reeded edge detail of the coin from damage, as seen in the image below:
